New Yarns in December!

We probably should have waited until the beginning of the new year (for end of year inventory purposes) to bring in new yarns, but we sometimes can't help ourselves. When we see a yarn hole, we strive to fill it!

In the past week, we added Plymouth's Yakima (see photo) as well as Universal's Colorburst. Colorburst is a mega skein (660 yards) of 65% superwash merino/35% acrylic sport/dk weight yarn. It sells for $19.95 and one skein will make a lovely shawl, or child's sweater.

Multnomah

Multnomah is a free Ravelry pattern. We knit it in Trendsetter Yarns' Evolution, a dk weight, 100% merino wool yarn made in Italy. We sell the 495-yard cake for $32.95. The original pattern uses 412 yards of fingering weight yarn, but really it can be made with any weight.

What makes this yarn unique is that the gradients fade into smaller color repeats, making it lovely for edging a shawl, and perfect for yoked sweaters. We have eight colorways; come in and see them!

Our Shipping Policy

Even though our Web site is not designed with a shopping cart, we will happily ship anything to you.

At this time, we only ask for the exact cost of the shipping; there is no handling charge.

By the way, the man in the photo is our well-loved UPS deliveryman. He is always smiling and happy, even when hauling heavy boxes down the stairs. (He must be a secret wannabe knitter.)
